Left or Right Foot braking on an Auto

Do you brake with your Right or Left foot on your Auto Vehicle.

I always use my Left foot as I was informed that this give you a few 10ths of a second advantage in emergencies.

When I started doing this I went out and practiced on a car park and soon picked it up.

Interested in your responses.

I use the same foot as the accelerator. Never failed in braking promptly and smoothly.
